Eames Designs: The Guest Host Relationship

Ten-Panel Folding Screen by Charles Eames

From the legendary collection of molded plywood furniture designed by Charles Eames—introduced in 1946 at an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art—which defined post-war American design. This ten-panel screen was the largest version offered by Herman Miller, though on rare occasions longer ones were made to special order.

Condition Very good original condition, with the usual small instances of veneer loss at the top or bottom edges of some of the panels. Canvas hinges are very good overall.

Measurements Height: 5 ft. 8 in. Width/Length: 9 ft. 2 in. Depth: 5 in.

Eames Designs: The Guest Host Relationship is a part of the city-wide Pacific Standard Time initiative. Pacific Standard Time is an unprecedented collaboration of more than sixty cultural institutions across Southern California, coming together to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene.

This exhibition will focus in on the words of Charles and Ray Eames. This theme will be explored through a display of Eames' quotes shown typographically and on film – alongside key related objects (from tumbleweed; to bread; to a keg of nails) and vintage furniture. It will examine the relationship between these objects and the ideas that flow from them. It will aim to illustrate how their innovative insights can inspire us to appreciate the world differently by honoring “the uncommon beauty of common things.”
